Teen Helps Distribute Food To Families Less Fortunate
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- More than 100 families will no longer worry about where they'll get their meal from this holiday.
Christina Poole, 14, partnered up with Head Start, a preschool program to help create food boxes for those less fortunate.
Poole started helping when she was just 10 years old and says she's continued for the next four years because of the enjoyment she gets out of helping brighten up peoples' holidays.
"My first year it was little scary because I didn't know what would happen, but when we gave food to the people, it was exciting because they were so happy," said Christina Poole, organizer.
Organizers have created 149 boxes that will be given out to families in Grand Junction, Rifle and Parachute.
The boxes hold turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, vegetables and bread.
